South African media personality Unathi Nkayi recently took to her Instagram Story to express her love and gratitude towards her friend, media personality Minnie Dlamini. In her post, Unathi shared how Minnie helped her overcome depression by pulling her out of her bedroom and flying her to be with her.
Unathi’s post read: “Therapy Tuesdays: When you literally pulled me out of depression; stuck in my bedroom for a week and flew me to you. I love you Gazlam @minniedlamini.”
Inside the Pair’s Friendship
Unathi and Minnie have a close friendship, with the actress revealing that she speaks to Unathi almost every day. The two worked together on Mzansi Magic’s talk show, Festive Get-Together in the Life Artois, where Unathi was the host and Minnie was a guest.
In an interview with The Citizen, Minnie shared how natural it was for her to be interviewed by her friend: “With Unathi, I speak to her almost every day. So the moment we get together and start speaking, I’m sure we’ll all pretty much forget that the cameras are around, that’s how we are.”
The pair have also gone on “bestiecations” together. In 2021, a video of them, along with other friends, doing the Nkao Tempela dance in Cape Town went viral.
Unathi’s post is a heartwarming reminder of the power of friendship and the importance of having a support system during difficult times.
